Freediving Courses in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Freediving is considered by many to be the purest form of diving. Imagine feeling weightless and completely relaxed. No heavy equipment on your back, no loud bubbles – just you, the ocean, and its beautiful silence. As you sink beneath the waves you become one with the water, and begin to absorb the vast beauty around you. The stress of the world above drips away as fish curiously flutter around taking you in as one of their own. This is freediving.

Our freediving programs in Cabo San Lucas are unique and aim to create safe, confident freedivers. Our program has been meticulously crafted with help from our close friends at Amancay Freediving – one of the top freediving schools in North America.  Our courses are designed to give you more time to practice and are all taught at a maximum ratio of 2 students to 1 instructor – so you receive the personalized attention you deserve as you embark on this journey. Our freediving instructors are knowledgeable, patient, and passionate about teaching & preserving our oceans. They make up a fundamental part of Team Ninja.

Below you’ll find our Cabo San Lucas freediving courses. They make a great addition to any of our expeditions as they will help you feel more comfortable and confident in the water. We offer both PADI and SSI courses.
